Sounding the wood: a musical playground at Prior Park

Children enjoying the wooden instruments in the musical playground

We invite you to immerse yourself in the natural chirping, twittering and rustling sounds of the garden, before you discover a musical playground, a space to play, create and listen.

Inspired by the landscape of Prior Park, local adventure play company TouchWood have made a group of ‘woodland instruments’. Nestled within the garden the musical playground is for you to discover, explore and play.
